Go Back Report # 636


       On the 14th of March 1990, Mr. Gates, a fisherman from Liverpool was stood by the river Mersey with his two sons, Alex and Peter. All claimed to have witnessed a brightly lit object under the water, about 800 metres away. The object moved slowly to the left and then stopped. A few seconds later the object shot away from them at high speed. They then claimed that the object was seen in the distance lifting from the water and flying up into the low cloud cover. The incident took place at 8.45 pm. The local airport at Speak claimed to have received many UFO reports that evening, yet no strange radar detection’s occurred.

       To date there has been no satisfactory explanation from any military officialdoms and the Ministry of Defence stated this report and others in the area have been logged; however, we do not believe nor disbelieve in the UFO phenomena. We here at the MOD are only interested in National Security, and there was like all other reports of UFOs, no National Security risk. The case was closed with the conclusion of USO, (Unidentified Submersible Object). USO cases are very rare, so therefore it is not a necessity to have a USO encounter range. Most experiences are categorised under the UFO encounter range, be them in close proximity or distant.
